Motorcycle-Police Cruiser Collide
The Portland Police Department traffic unit is investigating a motor vehicle collision between an unmarked Portland police car and a motorcycle that occurred March 27 at about 5:30 P.M. in the vicinity of 880 Forest Avenue

The unmarked police car was a 2001 Ford Crown Victoria operated by police process server Toni Doucette, a civilian employee of the department. The motorcycle was a 2002 Suzuki operated by 22-year-old Troy Soucy of Mount Vernon, Maine.

Preliminary investigation indicates that Ms. Doucette was exiting the parking lot of 880 Forest Avenue onto Forest Avenue in a northerly direction and Mr. Soucy was driving inbound on Forest Avenue in a southerly direction when the collision occurred.

Mr. Soucy was transported by ambulance to Maine Medical Center with serious injuries. He remains hospitalized. Ms. Doucette was not injured. There were no other occupants of either vehicle. Multiple witnesses have been interviewed and efforts to reconstruct the collision are ongoing.
